FOTD: When All Else Fails, Wing It Emerald Green

I can't tell you enough how sick I am as I write this post. I thought I was invincible! You see I haven't been sick even with a cold for the last two years despite my daily interactions with patients. But I wasn't spared so here I am coughing, sniffling, blogging. May the force be with ya.

Such is the reason for today's FOTD (face of the day) post title. Moi no energy. Super dull face. So when all else fails, wing it emerald green.

Curious with what I used?

It's Milani Ultra-fine liquid eyeliner in emerald glisten (about $7).  Please tell me you know that emerald green is 2013's color of the year (c'mon it's July already!). So while buying Dayquil and Nyquil few days ago, my feet re-routed me to the beauty aisle and even though I was sick as hell to be even thinking about makeup, my trip won't be complete without having one. 

I'm not going to repeat what is obvious- yes it's a liquid eyeliner. yes it's emerald. yes it's felt-tip. But it will make sense if I say that it's a tad difficult to create that winged effect because the tip is stiff! It doesn't glide easily and I had to layer it three times to get the saturated green I wanted. But once it's dry it looks so pretty that I can fake sickness through and through. It didn't smudge or melt the whole time I was wearing it (more than ten hours max!).

This is the 3rd day I am rocking this winged emerald green so we might as well call this post Face of the Days.

Have a wonderful weekend!
